Which medication is she on? Some of the more aggressive and newer drugs are associated with cancer risks – but it depends on the drug. Also, the ones that are associated with cancer risks are only linked to certain types of cancers (as far as I know). Cancer risk would be a listed potential side-effect of the drug, if there is a risk.

She was on avonex. But I couldn’t find anything, although she said she did when she researched.
I know tysabri has been linked to PML.
But I was wondering about other types of cancers they may cause.
